OBITUARY NOTES Conditions Prevailing Threaten to Dis turn European Markets. Berlin, Feb. 24. The tightening of; financial conditions in Japan is re- , garded hy banks here as likely to re sult in the transfer rrom lonuou w Tokio of a large portion of Japan's balances, and to disturb somewhat the European money markets. Ja pan's balances ,:n London art esti mated at between $60,000,uuu ana $7n.non oon. At the Japanese embassy here the news of panicky conditions at Osaki, Kyoto and Kobe is discredited, but private advices to German firms trad ing in the Far East confirm the money scarcity. The recent stringency In the United States is believed to be affect ing Japan, especially as Japanese ex ports to the United States have fallen off to a considerable extent. The prolonged doubts concerning Japan's intentions toward the United States In the emigration dispute have tended to make Euronean bankers with Japan ese connections withdraw their loans and conduct their business with un usual caution.
